Isle of Man

My Uncle Charles is there to greet me at the ferry at midnight. We toss my panniers into his car and I sprint behind him the 2.5 miles it takes to get to his and Claudia’s home.

I spend the next few days relaxing and seeing the Isle of Man by car. Not cycling? No, there is a constant 25mph wind, it rains every day, and it is cold. So nice to be indoors with some hot tea, good company, and the internet.

I will catch the Ferry to England tomorrow morning and begin cycling again.

Thanks Charles and Claudia for having me and showing me your dramatic windswept island.

One thought on “Isle of Man

  1. In Ireland Galic is alive and well. The schools have Galic as a required course. I heard many people speaking Galic in the country. On the Isle of Mann there is a native language called Manx that sounds to my untrained ears like Galic. But Manx is a dying language.
